insurance. >>> this week marks the 48th anniversary of the third and decisive civil rights march from selma to montgomery, alabama. harry belafonte recruited tony bennett to march with him it happened has marchers tried to cross the bridge, known as bloody sunday. the message of civil rights still permeates today. >> selma was different, that they were willing to kill, bomb, burn, destroy, so to ask our people to go there was a whole different game. >> he remembers the selma to montgomery marches in 1965. 50 miles had to be covered, but the real obstacle was hate. not along at 600 marchers began on sunday, march 7th, police brutally beat them, driving them back to selma. >> when bloody selma happened and then dr. king decided to march again after it, what was the mood? >> the mood was the mood was rebellious. the question is, what do we do in the face of this kind of rage and this kind of mayhem. the bottom line was that we go back as often as necessary. >> belafonte, enlisted by dr. king to bring artists into the movement, convinced the likes of joan baez, paul newman and marlon brando, bu
of the justice department civil rights division thomas perez to be the president's next secretary of labor. moments later republican secretary david vitter said he would block that nomination. he joins us. >> good to be with you. >> greta: why do you want to block tom perez from being the secretary of labor. >> and civil rights, i think he's completely politicized that office and running it like an extension of the national democratic party or even an extension of obama's reelection campaign and i'm very concerned about that. >> greta: what makes you say that? >> because they've sued louisiana and it's off base. >> greta: they've won. >> no, they haven't. >> greta: i thought they won in-- >> it's an ongoing litigation. >> greta: in january, didn't the judge have the trial in october and rule in january? >> no. >> greta: that the state of louisiana violated the federal law failing to offer an opportunity to vote for all applicants, that's wrong. >> it's ongoing, that part is under appeal, but it's a major, major effort to really intimidate louisiana, its offices to get personal information,
for brokering peace with the palestinians by painting it as a civil rights issue in personal term terms. >> put yourself in their shoes. look at the world through their eyes. it is not fair that a palestinian child cannot grow up in a state of their own. spending their entire lives with the presence of a foreign army that controls the movements not just of those young people, their parents and grandparents every single day. neither occupation nor expulsion is the answer. just as israelis built a state in their homeland, palestinians have a right to be a free people in their own land. >> mr. obama also stressed the unbreakable alliance between israel and the utsz. >> make no mistake, those who adhere to the ideologically of rejecting israel's right to exist, they might as well reject the earth beneath them or the sky above because israel's not going anywhere. today, i want to tell you, particularly the young people, so that there's no mistake here, so long as there is a united states of america, [ speaking foreign language ] . you are not alone. >> the speech was reminiscent of remarks the presi
.org/possibilities. >>> tomorrow, the supreme court will begin hearing arguments in two of the biggest civil rights cases to reach its docket in years, if not in decades. up for consideration, doma, the so-called defense of marriage act, and california's proposition 8. as the court prepares for an historic moment, more public figures are weighing in. we can now add senator claire mccaskill of missouri and senator mark warner of virginia to the growing number of current and former lawmakers throwing their support behind marriage equality. senator mccaskill wrote, "i have come to the conclusion that our government should not limit the right to marry based on who you love. while churches should never be required to conduct marriages outside of their religious beliefs, neither should the government tell people who they have a right to marry." senator mark warner announced his support for marriage equality in a facebook post. "i support marriage equality because it is the fair and right thing to do." one of the two lawyers arguing against california's prop 8, david boyce, has predicted vark victory. >> i think we're g
equality. and the marriage question, marriage equality, is a civil rights issue. and i think it has dawned on certain corners of the republican party they can no longer hold on to antiquated and perhaps bigoted views. but it is going to be tough, lawrence, as much as there is progress, there is a base that is very, very violently resisting entering into the modern era as far as this is concerned. >> and ari melber, of course what john boehner and lindsay graham and these guys who say i believe in marriage of one man and one woman, what they, of course, mean is they believe in a marriage of one man and as many women as he wants in sequence and one woman and as many men as she wants in sequence throughout her life, since, of course, they have absolutely no problem with divorce, which really upsets the old one man, one woman model. >> yeah. if you look at the demography of it, it has always been very weird that a country like the united states, which has high church attendance, but very low, you know, sustenance rates for marriage, has this sort of obsession. but i think what saxby may be try

. this is not democracy. this is not freedom. >> right. >> what is it? >> what it is is first of all we set this thing up to where we supported the shiites and the sunnis are now -- there is going to be a version of a civil war. right now, as we speak here live on cnn there is an alternate reality on another network. they are over there today saying how great it is. iraq's free. >> you mean fox. >> yes. i don't really want to, you know, disparage. >> let me read this tweet from donald rumsfeld. the iraqis deserve our respect and appreciation. >> he's a war criminal as far as i'm concerned. yor i don't understand why he, bush, cheney are walking the streets. the way they are trying to revise history saying it was a mistake or we were given bad information. say nobody sent me an e-mail or a tweet that said goldman sachs downtown right now in their basement they havethey are hold them there. i tell the police this. what will happen to me when they go down to goldman sachs and find no kids many n the basement? of course, you would think i would want to go after goldman sachs as bush wanted to go after saddam
out for human rights. let's support same sex civil union. for the first time in six years they voted him down. he got everything else through as head of that conference. they voted against him which means that most the bishops in that room were less progressive than pope francis on this issue. >> which is pretty incredible. by the way, for some people that may be surprised what civil unions get him is you can have civil unions and you don't have to use the term marry or have a religious ceremony. >> right. obviously the church is not ready for that, nor would pope francis be ready for that. he wanted to respect human rights. that's the real surprise here that people say he's anti-gay. can you be anti-gay marriage and not be anti-gay. i think there is a distinction here. he is moderate in this issue. >> it's an interesting point. i don't know that everyone would agree with you on that issue of whether you can be anti-gay, anti-gay marriage. but you're trying to draw that distinction, right? >> i think so. there is a distinction to be made. first of all, i don't think we should have he
to have a civil union, that's fine with me. interviewing john kasich about his views on gay rights. this is a very relevant issue in ohio republican politics because ohio senator ron portman just changed his position to be in favor of gay marriage now because he has a gay son. he told this interviewer he has talked to senator portman about the issue, he does not share senator portman's view gay people ought to have equal marriage rights but he is fine with civil union, except he is apparently not fine with civil unions. he forgot he is actually against them. his office followed up with a statement that said the governor does not actually mean it. quote he may have used the term "civil union" loose lin this instance. the governor's position is unchanged. he gay marriage and changing ohio's constitution to allow for civil unions. ohio republicans banned civil unions for gay people in 2004 and john kasich supports that ban. when he said today quote if you want to have a civil union that's fine with me. he did not mean it. he forgot he doesn't actually believe that. his office had to c
to teach him how to use this stuff. this cannot be right in a civilized society. >> first of all, piers, it's not that i oppose the ban. what i do support is a more healthy debate about the ban, and whatever our legislature, whether state or federal, comes out with, i will support. i'm not a gun person, personally. but i do believe that all sides of the issue need to be focused on and there's other issues that need to be addressed also. mental health checks, access for us. that would be part of the background process. having mental health checks to find out if there's issues within the home. knowing who has these types of weapons. another thing that concerns me is when someone does die who does have weapons. but we're not notified that there are weapons in the home. who takes possession of those weapons for the short term until it's decided who they should go to? then they end up on the streets. so those are the things that i'm concerned about. and i just think that we have to have a really thorough debate about the issue. >> i thoroughly agree with that. and this is a very constructive one
with the criminal case. he didn't take the stand. he asserted his right to remain silent. and now there is civil litigation pending, involving especially victim number two who you heard talked about in that clip. in a sense by testifying in this way, communicating through the media, he gets to participate, dump evidence into the court of public opinion which will have some effect on the civil proceedings, possibly even influence the appellate court though i doubt it. the bottom line is he gets to give his statement without subjecting himself to a deposition or testimony under oath in a court of law. what a creep. that guy has no guts. this is the coward's way, coward's way to seek justice. i don't think it's going to help at all. >> ann, let me ask you about this victim at the center, victim number two. the person who did the three hour interview with sandusky, it was a long interview, he claims that there were events in 2011 that shed new light on the case altogether. especially when it comes to victim two this was the boy in the shower with sandusky. so here's what ziegler claims victim two ha
